A popular Redskins fullback says he's sorry for a recent outburst. Redskins Mike Sellers has apologized for throwing the American flag to the ground. The incident occurred during Friday's preseason game against the Patriots. Sellers says he meant no disrespect to the flag, and that he did it, quote, "...in the heat of the moment.''

The fullback added he's aware of the proper conduct when it comes to the flag and should have known better.

Last year the Redskins began a pregame routine in which the last person introduced runs out of the tunnel hoisting the American flag. On Friday, Sellers carried the flag to midfield, then flung it down near the 50-yard line before joining his teammates in a midfield huddle.
